Hi I'm Seth Cranford

I grew up in Florida. I love football! I'm the youngest of eleven kids and son of the two greatest parents ever!!! I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I grew up in the small town of Macclenny, Florida. Huge Florida State fan, Go Noles. I'm the youngest of eleven awesome kids! Eight brothers and two sisters. I have twenty incredible nieces and nephews with many more to come. In Florida I played football and was on the weightlifting team. I moved to Springville, Utah for my junior and senior year. In Springville I played football, threw for the track team, and wrestled. I love sports and the outdoors, especially football. I'm addicted to adrenaline! I love all types of music and how it can express the type of person you are. Love the scary movies! I love spending time with all of my family and friends!!! I have the greatest friends that always support me and the greatest family to always show their love for me and be there for me in anytime of need. I love that my family is very much one of a kind and there are truly no others like mine. We do alot of crazy stuff! I find it pretty cool that we fight, not because we're mad, but because we love eachother. You can't be around us without laughing, best family ever!!!!!. I think the sky, especially the moon and clouds are the most beautiful part of nature. Daydreaming is one of my favorite hobbies. Now i'm serving a two year mission for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints in the South Carolina Columbia Mission.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon and will always be a Mormon because of the peace and joy this faith brings into my life. The importance of families and the fact that they can be sealed for all time and eternity is a truth that is only found in The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. That is something that I hold very dear to me. Through any question or concern that i've ever had regarding anything, I've always been able to find my answers through this beautiful gospel. I have felt the Holy Ghost witness to me many times the truthfulness of this gospel and that this truly is Jesus Christ's one true church restored to the earth. I love it!!!!!

How I live my faith

I live my faith by striving to follow the commandments. I'm serving a mission for the Lord by serving the wonderful people of South Carolina. I love doing service for anyone who is ever in need. Having the opportunity to attend church every Sunday and partake of the bread and water is always an incredible blessing and great way to live my faith!!! Helping out in the community is pretty awesome too. I love the feeling of doing my best at following the examples of the Savior Jesus Christ. That always brings so much satisfaction!

Do Mormons practice polygamy?

Seth Cranford
NOPE!!!!! I have ten brothers and sisters and we're all from the same mom and dad. No steps or halves, all full-blooded brothers and sisters. Neither one of my parents have ever had former spouses and would never even consider considering it. Pretty good stuff isn't it?! Show more Show less
